Hebrews 10:22-23 (NIV) let us draw near to God with a sincere heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled to cleanse us from a guilty conscience and having our bodies washed with pure water.
What a guilty conscience takes away from you are boldness and assurance. When a person has a guilty conscience, he cannot deal with God in boldness. And this will greatly hinder the flow of God’s grace in his life.
We have seen previously that one way to overcome a guilty conscience is by convincing your conscience (that you are a child of God) in God’s presence. 1 John 3:18-20 [NET] says: Little children, let us not love with word or with tongue but in deed and truth. 19 And by this we will know that we are of the truth and will convince our conscience in his presence.
We have previously seen that the way to convince your conscience is by recognizing the fruit of God’s seed in your heart, which manifests in acts of love that your life has been able to produce. This is worthy of note because it is only those who have been fathered by God that can produce such love that does not have the selfish motive (see 1 John 4:7). If the devil has been trying to deceive you to think you are not truly born of God, and because of this, your conscience has been condemning you in God’s presence, the way to overcome this is by using your practical fruits of love as proof that you have been indeed fathered by God.
This is why for us Christians, Love is a commandment we must obey. This commandment is not grievous but is for our spiritual benefit.
As you go into today, remember that those who walk in the Light (by walking in love) are the ones who will receive cleansing by the blood of Jesus (see 1 John 1:7).
Prayer: Ask the Lord to help you walk in practical love.
Confession: Because Christ Jesus is now my Lord, I walk above every guilt and curse, and walk in the blessing of Abraham
